, there were protesters that came up. dianne feinstein, the senator had to gavel the whole thing. let's watch what happened a moment ago. we don't have it. all right. as soon as we have it, you will see it and you can see the hearing is under way now. let's continue on at the top of the hour. live in atlanta, frightening times in southern california as a flofr fipolice officer fired job is on the run and wants revenge. this is a vendetta against all police in southern california. here's his picture. i want you to take a good long look. this is 33-year-old christopher jordan dorner. he is wanted in connection with a string of shootings. he is accused of shooting three officers and killing one this morning in riverside, california. he is also wanted in connection with the killing of monica quan, the daughter of retired lapd captain randall quan and her fiance last weekend. here is what the chief said just a short time ago. >> the person with whom we are dealing has made it clear he considers police officers and their families fair game for his assaults. we don't know if that extents to the fami
that was introduced last month by senator dianne feinstein, and that you heard mentioned again today by the president. now, that's not necessarily a done deal. that's not necessarily final. if that bill reaches the senate, the senate floor without a ban he is now a senator and represents the whole state. we called senator murphy's office tonight to get his reaction to this reporting of how gun policy reform might move through the senate. he said, quote, too many people in washington want to eulogize specific pieces of common-sense gun reform before the debate has even started. how can we wait for another state to join connecticut on the tragically long list of states devastated by gun violence? there would be more girls and boys alive in newtown today if the ban on military-style and magazines had been on the books in december. she does not yet have the votes she needs to pass it, but she is not giving. she has key supporters clueing dick durbin and chuck schumer. and remember, historically speaking, it was dianne feinstein who got the old assault weapons ban passed in 1994, and nobody thought she co
was it they were willing to talk to pat roberts or me or dianne feinstein, but not anybody else until we literally bludgeoned them into agreeing to include everybody? like carl levins, not trustworthy? it's amazing, and i pursue dianne feinstein's point about staff. when you go and you have under the previous administration, a briefing with the president, the vice president, the head of the cia and others, you're not allowing -- i can remember driving with pat roberts when he was chairman and i was vice chairman, we were not allowed to talk to each other driving up and driving back. we were not allowed to do that. of staff is part of nothing. you have to understand that you're surrounded by people who work with you and fill you in. people who are experts. we are too. but they have to be part of this. they got fo to be part of when e olc comes to them also. i strongly support the chairman's view on that. now, in the enhanced interrogation techniques, a handful of senior cia officials who were personally invested and are personally invested, with the cia detention and interrogation program, largely
with dianne feinstein's weapons ban which they find lukewarm in advancing. >> i'll take a look at that as i've indicated to you. we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns. i think would be well advised to read the legislation. >> reid has shielded his members on budgets since 2009 but democrats have promised to pass one this year. the house speaker is prepared for bruising debates ahead. >> the process was designed to be inefficient and difficult. there is a a lot of the scar tissue that carries over with these bills. it's up to the congress with how to deal with them. >> for reid and his democrats, it will be a difficult balance trying to be loyal to the white house and worrying about self-preservation. too many controversial votes could lead to big losses in 2014 and put reid into the minority. >> chris: mike, thanks for. >> this afternoon we leernd that marco rubio will give response to president obama's state of the union address. tune in next tuesday for special coverage. president obama has nominated sally jewel to head the interior department. she is head of a company

that allows us when it's brought to the floor to start offering amendments. if dianne feinstein by the time through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh, i don't know. i, frankly -- and she knows i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think that we need to take a look at federal trafficking. i think that everyone acknowledges we should do something with background checks. >> universal background checks. >> yeah, we need to increase that. i'm still a supportor of the second amendment but -- >> how about restrictions on high-capacity magazines for am m munition? >> i think we definitely have to look at it. >> look or vote for it? >> let's see what it is. let's see what it is. you know, i know there are restrictions people had forever as to how many bullets you can have in a weapon, for example, if you want to hunt waterfowl you have to plug that to only shoot three times in a

"wall street journal" saying the senate democrats include a bill limiting magazine clips and universal background checks despite continuing opposition of the nra. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it is never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >>> and factor this one in. an ad by mayors against illegal guns ran during the super bowl. it pointed out that the nra once supported closing the so-called gun show loophole. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> let me bring in our political panel. radio talk show host and ms nns contributor michael smerkonish, mar gi o may ra and republican strategist hogan gitley. i sho
leahy, i want a bill to come out of the committee. if dianne feinstein by the time it's through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh,i don't know. frankly, and she knows, i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense. but i'll take a look at it. >> mayor, is senator reid doing enough to move this legislation? >> i believe he should read the amendment and listen to a former mayor, dianne feinstein, who stuck her finger in a bullet hole at a scene of a crime. that's what we see as mayors. in washington assault ban weapon, it's a political issue. here is how it sounds to me. my daughter will be teaching school next year. if somebody is in the horrible situation of shooting in that classroom, and they're forced to reload the gun, that may be my daughter's life, that may be your child's life. force people to reload. my god, if we can't do that, it's horrible enough about what is happening out here. stop
last month by senator dianne feinstein, and that you heard mentioned again today by the president. now, that's not necessarily a done deal. that's not necessarily final. if that bill reaches the senate, the senate floor without a ban on assault weapons included, it is possible lawmakers could then amend the bill on the senate floor to include the ban. but they also might not. sam stein at "huffington post" reported today that the assault weapons ban might be strategically sacrificed in order for the rest of the president's plan to go through. sam stein reporting that advocates for gun control are not as concerned about the assault weapons ban as they are with some other elements of the president's package. jim kessler of americans for gun safety says, quote, if you are going to die at the hands of a criminal with a gun, it's going to be a handgun. and statistically speaking, which is what he means, that might be true. but it's not handguns that people remember from a tragedy like what happened at sandy hook elementary in december. it's assault weapons that now appear so difficult in po
? >> dianne feinstein, the chair of the committee yesterday still saying yesterday they wanted the original documents. then today on our program at 1:00, the house chairman who carries a lot of weight about and has is very supportive, a former fbi guy, a republican, though, said he also thought the original memos should be turned over, that the white paper that had been turned over to them last summer that michael isikoff uncovered and reported first on your show was not good enough. that it needed to finally be the actual legal guidance that was turned over to the oversight committees. and we're talking about the two intelligence committees, rachel, who handle classified information all the time. and there haven't been any leaks out of those committees. so they were facing a confirmation hearing that was potentially contentious. and also, other answers were given to the committee that were revealed today from john brennan. we can talk about that after a moment. they knew that there were other issues they were going to have to deal with. they needed to get this off the table. >> well, in te
that senator dianne feinstein was forced to call a brief recess. after things got under control brennan had to deal with tough and necessary questions and here is part of his exchange with senator mark o-rubio about the benghazi terrorist attack, watch this. >> have you talked to folks in the cia about their impressions of the quality of information we're getting from our foreign partners? >> yes, on a regular basis. >> and they've indicated-- would it surprise you to know that they've indicated to us repeatedly over the last couple of years that i've been here that the information he we get directly is much better than anything we get from our foreign partners on some of these issues. >> that's why we work with the foreign partners and get the-- >> i'm concerned because al harzi, i think how you pronounce the name and a suspect in the benghazi attack and he was taken into custody by the tunisians. >> yes, he was taken into custody. >> did we not ask for access to them. >> the tunisians didn't have the law. >> they released him. >> he's still in tunisia. >> you're fully comfortable with thi
, me, or saxby chambliss and dianne feinstein but not anybody else? until we literally bludgeoned them into agreeing to include everybody. like carl levin's not trustworthy? you know, i think it's amazing. >> i don't think he meant literally bludgeoned. but still. this was the really unexpected clear partisan divide of the day. democrats demanding more ability to oversee what the intelligence community does, more access to more information by more people including their staffers. and republicans chastising john brennan for what they view as him providing too much information to the public, not keeping enough secrets. you always hear that there is broad bipartisan agreement on matters of intelligence and national security in washington now. that was not the case today. at least on this issue. and that's not necessarily a bad thing. but it tells you that we really do still have two very different parties in this country when it comes to national security. common wisdom be damned. ? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your
that information. intelligence committee chairwoman dianne feinstein said despite reports drones have killed hundreds of civilians -- >> the figures we've obtained from the executive branch which we have done our utmost to verify confirm that the number of civilian casualties that have resulted from such strikes each year has typically been in the single digits. >> john: which would make anyone opposed to the drone war killing civilians feel so much better. on the plus side, senator feinstein provided plans to provide oversight of the drone war. >> i also intend to review proposals for regulation -- excuse me, for legislation to ensure that drone strikes are carried out in a manner consistent with our values. and that the proposal to create and an na log of the foreign intelligence surveillance court to review the conduct of such strikes. >> john: it is worth noting a 2012 poll shows americans already think drone strikes are consistent with our values. nearly four out of five adults approve the use of drone strikes against terrorist suspects overseas. 2/3 suspected using drones to kill ameri
